George Glade Housley, 89, passed away Oct. 10, 2017, at the Heritage Senior Living Center in Preston, Idaho. He was born March 2, 1928, in Dayton, Idaho, the son of George Frederick and Hazel Adelene Bowman Housley. He married Lois Bingham on July 21, 1950, in the Logan Utah LDS Temple.

He was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He served an LDS mission to New Zealand as a young man and he and his wife served as LDS Church Farm Service missionaries. He also served in the bishopric. He enjoyed flying and was a pilot. He loved photography and had a photographic memory. He was always a hard worker. He owned and operated a masonry contracting business for years in Arizona and was instrumental in some of the early developments in southern Arizona. He also ran a dairy farm. He was ingenious– he could turn junk into something useful.
